Refer to the post by Epic007
http://scubasg.com/south-east-asia/mapur-bintan-island-lob-2n2d/

I am working with epic007 to dive and explore the un-explored dive sites around Bintang island, and with second day might go to Igara wreck, I plan the trip to be next weekend 22-24May on my LOB. However, I must have at least 10 divers to sign up, then i can run the trip, to cover my cost.

Since this is going to explore new dive sites, I will prefer experience divers to be on this trip, and on LOB, we are not restricted by the location of resorts, we can explore any dive sites as long as it is within reach of the boat and unlimited dive as long as your dive com allows, last Tioman trip, I even told the divers that if they are crazy enough, they can even do mid night dive, but no one took up because they were too tired after many dives.

The trip can leave on Friday late night at 10pm, will then travel slowly overnight to Batam, will do custom clearance on Saturday morning, and we will move on to our dive sites, we can then decide on Saturday night whether do we want to dive Igara wreck on Sunday or not, if the dive sites are good, we can stay around the island and do a few more dives on sunday before heading back to Singapore, we should reach Singapore about 9pm.

The price and detail of the dive sites is shown in epic007's post. if interested, can either PM me or him to sign up the trip. If you have more idea to discuss or dive sites to propose, we will discuss it in that thread.

Regards,
KP

Normal, when we said full gear, includes fins, BCD, Reg, wetsuit and mask. Dive Com will need additional cost. I can rent you BCD, Reg and Dive Com for $60 in this case.

you get dive comp instead of mask and fins. frankly wetsuit, mask and fins rental don't make much, maybe $10-20. the costly rental items are BCD and regs because of maintenance costs. dive comps some places are renting out for $20 a day.

this is a pretty good deal for equipment rental. or do you have better deals to share?
